We have added the ever growing in popularity auto installer Softaculous. This is an alternative to Fantastico as we've noticed over the past several years Fantastico's quality has drastically diminished. With updates to scripts taking weeks or even months. Along with that the script library being significantly out of date. Softaculous has 128 scripts available as of this announcement and continues to add more. Even with this massive script library they have continued to provide updates to scripts at a rapid pace. This is especially important with the majority of script updates being for security fixes.

It is now available on all our shared and reseller customers free of charge. You'll notice the Softaculous link in your cPanel next time you login. We are a NOC partner which means we will also be offering it to our virtual private server customers. It will cost $1/month to add the premium version of Softaculous to your VPS. If you were to buy directly from them the cost would be $1.60 so there are savings in using us. If you're not interested in the paid version they also provide a free version with 60 scripts available. Keep in mind this version does not contain some of the more popular scripts.

We hope everyone enjoys Softaculous and it's abundance of scripts available. Hopefully this is only the first new feature of 2010 stay tuned!
